Some members of the BNA Executive discuss how COVID-19 has impacted them personally and their churches, both positively and negatively…

Pastor Brian Viljoen; “I miss the people.  I miss the Christian embrace.  I miss the fellowship and the singing, and the praying.  I yearn for that.”

Pastor Jacques Louw; “Church-wise, we’ve experienced …a disconnect – being able to connect with people electronically, but not really getting to their hearts…”

Pastor Parmesh Venkatasami; “The lockdown has enabled people to be more evangelistic.”

Pastor Dan Riddell; “It’s been good not have a manual on the way forward.  I think as churches we tend to try to look at ‘Ok, this is the how we do it!’ And I think we’re all navigating uncharted waters…”
